Resumen

The quantification of colony forming units (cfu), turbidity, and optical density at 600 nm (OD 600) measurements were used to evaluate Mycobacterium tuberculosis growth. Turbidity and OD 600 measurements displayed similar growth curves, while cfu quantification showed a continuous growth curve. We determined the cfu equivalents to McFarland and OD 600 units.
